HPE business women club supports Reaching for Rainbows

HPE BPW President, Jennifer May-Anderson presents $500 to Emily Pennington, Executive Director of the Reaching for Rainbows program.

The Hastings and Prince Edward Business and Professional Women Club (BPW HPE) donated $500 to support the Reaching for Rainbows program at St. Andrew’s Church in Picton.

“BPW clubs across Canada and around the world work toward creating better lives for girls and women, and in this small way we are helping to empower girls in Prince Edward County,” said Jennifer May-Anderson, BPW HPE president.

Reaching for Rainbows opened in 2010 to serve young girls and families with a play-based after-school program licensed by the Ministry of Education, to girls ages 6-9. The program focuses on building positive relationships, making healthy choices, and fostering a strong sense of self and belonging to help create resiliency.

“Each year our club holds a fundraiser that helps support the work our local club does and to help support another worthy local charity chosen by the membership,” said Anderson. “Members of our club know the importance of building confidence and resiliency in girls that will help build a foundation for them for the rest of their lives. That made it very easy for us to support Reaching for Rainbows.”

BPW HPE meetings are held virtually on the fourth Wednesday of the month where members and guests listen to inspiring and empowering presentations by local women. These presentations inform and motivate participants to learn more or take action to improve the circumstances of women locally and around the globe.
